    I have a 4300 you can have for postage. Don't know what the difference is, but 4300 sounds like a step up. Has a speedometer. maybe that's the step.

    Does the line tend to retain memory? I have several Airflos, an they're great lines but tend to coil just a little on the water.
    If this one's better, I'd be interested.

    A trailer kind of defeats the purpose of a pontoon, IMO; if you're going to tow and store and license a trailer, get a small boat instead.
